Unfortunately, no pictures were available for the actor playing The Angel of Mercy in The Yellow Box. Not to worry – a photographic look-alike agency came to the rescue.
The Angel’s ordinary looks and self-professed lack of humour belie tremendous drive. In fact, such is her zeal for expansion she might eventually drive the entire world into the Eurocratic stockade. She does, after all, spend considerable time roaming the planet for fresh acquisitions, much like 19th Century empire builders did.
‘We want you!’
Senior Grey is in awe of The Angel. And other Greys, like Dim and Cleverclogs, relish her visits to the Bristles basement.
But Rebel Grey, who has a nose for these things, thinks there’s more to The Senior’s relationship with The Angel than meets the eye. She clearly pooh pooh’s the idea – as you can see.
Expect to feel inspired by the Angel of Mercy’s personal appearance at Ledbury Market Theatre on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th September. Her pep talks are commanding.
But watch out! You too might become driven – to move permanently to Germolena under The Angel’s safe and sturdy wing for ever and ever …
